Leading Liverpool- based travel provider, Merseyrail has chosen Dynamax’s cloud- based application- digitalsignage.NET- to relay internal communications across all its five sites. The software allows staff to display site-relevant communications in conjunction with headquarters’ messages addressed to all employees.
As one of the most punctual and reliable railway networks in the UK, Merseyrail needed a well-coordinated corporate communications system to ensure that their high quality standards are known and maintained throughout the business.
Wanting to enhance the usefulness of the displays they already had in place but whose use was restricted to showing train time efficiency national ratings downloaded directly from an URL, they started looking for a platform that would enable them to do that but also communicate a wider variety of messages.
Incorporating self- updating web pages within digitalsignage.NET, the company is still able to send important information across the company without any human intervention (such as national targets or train proficiency time) while also enabling staff to communicate site-specific information in a variety of formats.
Thomas Philips, Business Analyst at Merseyrail commented on the project “As a forward- looking company for which timely communications are of outmost importance, we’ve always employed digital channels to disseminate real-time information across our sites. As the system we had in place was limiting the types of messages we could communicate and started to become redundant, we looked for potential ways to upgrade it. Dynamax’s digitalsignage.NET seemed a simple solution that could be deployed over our existing IT hardware infrastructure. The user-friendly interface allowed us to involve our staff regardless of their technical skills and enable them to use content already created by their colleagues, further decreasing the amount of work required for updating the system.”
Howard Smith, Director at Dynamax said ‘’ It is always a pleasure to see innovation in this type of environment- as today’s employees expect that technology will not only help them do their jobs easier- but will also enable them to communicate faster. We were pleased to be selected by Merseyrail and play a part in the launch of their new company-wide communication project‘’
Dynamax’s cloud- based application powers 20 screens across Merseyrail’s five sites: Rail House, Birkenhead North, Wirral and Ellesmere Port.
